Dr Karis and his office are excellent,couldn’t of asked for a better,right to the point dr-

Dr Karis saved my life. That is what you need to know. He is a no nonsense, skilled surgeon, who explained completely the intricacies of my surgery before hand and how he was going to approach it. I went to Dr Karis not only because of his excellent reputation and experience, but he, himself, will tell you he is not a "cowboy" in the OR. I felt well cared for during an impossible situation and do not hesitate to recommend him.

Lacks compassion, personal circumstances, physical presence. Pompous.
